Sometimes it’s nice not to know much ahead. When I found out about the invitation to a Valentine’s Day party by the luxurious JB jewelry, I didn’t dwell on the details. So, when I arrived to Taizu restaurant where the event took place, lots of positive surprises await
First of all, I entered the event together with Fawaz Gruosi, the businessman, founder, creator and icon of De Grisogono. The brand is internationally famous and represented in Israel by JB, among other luxury brands such as Chopard and Audemars Piguet. Gruosi is a very well-known character in the fashion world, and seeing him in Israel was a big surprise for me. Plus, in personal conversation he turned out to be a fascinating, smart man.
Besides him, the event was dotted with many local celebrities such as Hanna Laslo, Pnina Rozenblum, Kobi Peretz and Nir (Niro) Levi, and many others. The event, I must add, was in collaboration with designer Dani Mizrahi, who dressed models in his glamorous dresses, in the mood of the event.
All of the above, combined with well-dressed guests, good live music with dancers, excellent Asian food and high quality alcohol, made for a very festive atmosphere, fueled by great mood and high temperature – luckily, there were ice statues on site, with De Grisogono and JB symbols, to cool everyone down.
It was a truly unforgettable event, just like the invite promised – and I only read it after the fact! As it often happens, big expectations equal disappointment, and this time the promise was fully fulfilled!
And on a side note, if only I read the invitation ahead of time, I could have known that there was a possibility of booking a driver to take me home – and then I could have been totally free. But maybe, it’s for the better!
